all well and good....

but dont be so hung up on your concept of're atittude/understanding of "jesus" is really a perspective on christianity/western social constructs shaped by your current world view. jesus christ of nazareth was only marginally known in his time. remeber the first gospel was written 50 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH.

so no, you're right, between "jerry 'captain trips' garcia," figurehead of the greatest touring circus ever known, and "jesus christ" the name/symbol linked to the force that was unleashed after his death which has altered the course of human histroy for ever more, NO there is no comparison.

but i was actually comparing plain ole jerry and the prophet jesus....and unless your understanding of christianity is completely faulty, we all compare to jesus and vice versa.....LIKE UMMMM that;s sort of the whole idea....there is no way, as people living in this society that WE DON'T compare....we have no choice baby, they used his name when they made the rules
